Is my online transaction safe?

Apple uses industry-standard encryption to protect the confidentiality of the information you submit during checkout. When you submit order and payment information to us, we use 128-bit Extended Validation Secure Socket Layer (EV SSL) encryption to protect that information in transit. With SSL technology, the web address starts with “https://” instead of “http://” to indicate that your information is encrypted during transmission. With EV SSL, some browsers will display “Apple Inc.” in the URL field during checkout to verify that you are transacting with Apple.

Apple’s privacy protection standards are certified by TRUSTe. For more information, please review our Privacy Policy and Site Terms of Use
